Appleyard at Ferney

Sitting in the sunshine in Palo Alto I realise that it's downhill from now on. Two summits have been climbed. I have an Appreciation Society on Facebook - you are all required to join, it has only nine members one of whom is my daughter - and I have a page on IMDB thanks to a dazzling appearance which I can't remember on BBC's Breakfast in February 2007. My life's work is complete. Maintenant il faut cultiver notre jardin

  1. On your IMDB page, unfortunately, there are no interesting trivia: date of birth, height etc ...

    Cela il faudrait le faire pendant toute notre vie car c'est la seule chose qui nous rend vraiment heureux.

  2. I think you've also been 'Persauded' (how nice to be eponymised) - being away, you'll have no doubt missed this week's New Scientist - book review within on 'Mortal Coil' by David Boyd Haycock - strap line 'live forever or die trying' - I think this chap might be on to something ...

  3. who chose that photograph? it looks like a man straining to shit after a long night on the bevvy. a bit of moisturizer might've helped.
    do you realise this is the first time I've actually seen a Facebook? And my daughters have one each too! So, what happens now?

    I think some things are best kept secret...

  4. ...that breakfast appearance - that's the photo, isn't it? No, I expect it was the buddhist guy.

  5. Instead of being more present in everything, be more absent. It's healthier.

  6. The latter activity more appropriate.

    Sorry Dad, it's been somewhat hijacked by my friends!
